ATN Name Everclear "Band of the Year"

Addicted To Noise has picked Everclear for it's first annual "Band of the

Year" award. In the August issue of ATN (1.08) the brilliant Portland-based

trio is featured in an in-depth cover story by ATN editor Michael Goldberg

that includes exclusive video clips shot by ATN of the group rehearsing their

controversial hit, "Heroin Girl," in their basement studio in mid-July. The

group's latest album, Sparkle and Fade, is one of the best albums

released thus far in 1995. The upcoming issue also features an in-depth

interview with Chris Isaak, a behind-the-scenes look at Lollapalooza, a

profile of the beat-noir band Soul Coughing, a report on the Ramones recent

visit to London and an interview with Teenage Fanclub. Plus the debut of a

new column, Stuart Green's "Dateline London," reviews of Foo Fighters, Patti

Smith, Primus and lots, lots more. Exclusively on-line. August 1.
